I think there will be many disappointed owners with 3:55 rears.
Yeah, on a flat highway, the MPG will gain some, but the higher gears will make the truck more sluggish. Forget about towing, there will be a noticable drop off in performance.
I wish the 4:10 gears were available for my truck.

Any hint about the introduction date of the 6-speed Torqueshift? Would much rather have that than 3:55's. Had that gear ratio before, would never again.

The tranny is a 6-spd, it just uses 5 gears depending on your driving at the time. It will skip a gear depending on demand.

Are you hoping for a true 6-spd Auto?

Whats with the engine idle shutdown feature? I presume it's supposed to help with emissions, but why do they need to?

On a good note, the block heater is standard for Idaho. Woo-hoo
